His Honor the Mayor submitted the following 
vet© message: 

Chicago, May 9, 1881. 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago: 

I herewith return to you without my ap- 
proval, and for the reasons hereinafter set 
forth, an ordinance entitled "An ordinance con- 
senting that the Lincoln Park Commissioners 
may take parts of Dearborn avenue, Chicago 
avenue and Rush street," passed May 2, 1881. 

The power conferred by the General Assem- 
bly of the State upon the City Council to turn 
over streets to Park Commissioners for boule- 
vard purposes is one which should be exer- 
cised with great care. The streets of the city 
belong to the city and its people. To place a 
street out of the control of the city and to con- 
fer the regulation of the manner in which such 
street should be \ised upon a Board over which 
the authority of the city does not extend, is 
in derogation of the rights of the city and of 
its people. To tax the people is the highest 
power which can be exercised. The people 
should determine how the taxes taken from 
them should be expended. The Council should 
be certain that the majority of the people are 
satisfied with the manner of extending these 
taxes. Now to turn a public street into a bou- 
levard, and to give the control of such street 



to a Park Board, which has the power to ex- 
clude from it the people, under certain circum- 
stances, and will exclude them unless they use 
the same in a manner to be prescribed by such 
Board, and to use the taxes for adorning such 
street is to use the taxes of those who cannot 
so use the street in a manner not satisfactory 
to the people so excluded. Have the majority 
of the people of the North Division, who will 
have to pay a large amount each year to main- 
tain the boulevard establishsd by this ordi- 
nance, desired it to be established ? So 
far from satisfactory evidence having 
been furnished you of this desire, you have 
every reason to believe just the opposite. 
There are in the Clerk's office remonstrances 
signed by many thousands of the people in the 
North Division who most earnestly protest 
against the thing. It is true the streets so pro- 
tested against are not precisely the same as 
those now fixed upon by this ordinance. It is 
said that this ordinance is a compromise one, 
but I have every reason to think it is a compro- 
mise of a few who have interests in a small part 
of the division— to wit: a part of those east of 
Clark street. All of the great population west 
of Clark street and very many of those east of 
this street are as bitterly opposed to the pres- 
ent ordinance as they were to the one defeated 
last year, and against which these remon- 
strances were presented. Remonstrances signed 
by hundreds are now pouring in upon me. I can- 
not, therefore, consent to taxing the people of 
the whole North Side for the benefit of a few, 
especially when I have, to me, good evidence 
that the great majority object thereto. 

If Dearborn avenue be devoted to boulevard 
purposes, then there will be but one through 
street not occupied by street railroads left open 
to the people going north. Have the people 
directly interested in this boulevard any great 
need of it ? I think not. The Lake-shore drive 
extends nearly as far south as a boulevard 
should go. Leading up to this drive are several 
good streets on which wealthy people live. They 
are able and will keep these streets well paved, 
so that easy access can be had to the Lake- 
shore drive. This drive costs the majority of 
the North Division people who are far removed 
from it, and who cannot conveniently reach 
it, a very great sum each year, and has cost 
them to build it, I am imformed, about $200,000. 
Why tax them some $10,000 a year in addition to 
improve Dearborn avenue, which lies contigu- 
ous to this drive? Had the people interested 
not protested against the thing, I would have 
permitted the ordinance to become a law, as I 
did the Michigan avenue and West Washington 
street boulevard ordinances. I opposed both 
of them on principle. But no one objected, and 
it was a thing interesting the people of the 
South and West Divisions respectively. I felt 
I would yield a principle, when the people 
who had to pay seemed unwilling to demand 
that I should adhere to it. There are besides, 
to my mind, legal objections to this ordinance. 
The statute under which it is attempted to be 
passed, authorizes Park Commissioners to con- 
nect any park, boulevard, etc., under their con- 
trol, by selecting and taking any connecting 
street or streets, or parts thereof, leading to it. 
Sec. 2 of this act says: "That such Board of 
Park Commissioners or such corporate 
authorities as are authorized to levy 
taxes or assessments for maintenance 
of such parks, shall have power to improve such 
street or streets as they may deem best." Now, 
the Lincoln Park Board does not come within 
the list of sueh Boards. They cannot levy 
taxes or assessments. The Supervisor, Clerk 
and Assessor are the authorities designated by 
statute for such purposes in the North Divis- 
ion. In this respect this Board differs from the 
other Park Boards in Chicago. The authorities 
having power to levy taxes or assessment, to 
wit: the Supervisor, Clerk and Assessor may 



May 9,]

[1981 



fail to act, the Park Board would then be at its 
mercy, and no assessments might be made either 
for the first improvement of the boulevard or 
for its subsequent annual maintenance ; and in 
that event, or in the event of either of these 
named contingencies, the Park Board would be 
forced to divert funds necessary for the sup- 
port of the park, which is for the good of the 
whole people, and to apply the same to this 
boulevard, which is for a few only. It may be 
said that the words " such corporate authori- 
ties" above alluded to in Sec. 2 of the act are 
intended to cover the Supervisor, Clerk and 
Assessor of the North Town. If that view be 
taken, then the said Town Board is the Board 
authorized to improve the streets taken in 
such manner as it may deem best. 

This ordinance confers upon the Park Com- 
missioners power to improve these streets; the 
act of General Assemblv confers this power 
upon the Town Board. It may be said that the 
Commissioners will determine upon the man- 
mer of improvements, and will call upon the 
Town Board to make assessments for the first 
improvements, and afterward to levy taxes for 
the maintenance of those streets. Suppose the 
Town Board refuse to do as the Commissioners 
wish. Then, as the statute gives no power to 
the Board to enforce its wishes, mandamus 
would not lie, and endless trouble and litiga- 
tion would ensue. The majority of the people 
of the North Division who elect the Town 
Board, being opposed to this ordinance, there 
is every reason to believe that difficulties will 
be the" natural result of the passage of this 
ordinance. I do not, therefore, think that the 
statute under which this ordinance was passed 
can give the Council the power to confer upon 
the Park Commissioners the control of streets 
for boulevard purposes in such shape as will 
prove beneficial to the North Side. 

Another objection to this ordinance exists of 
a legal character, It says it shall be void 
unless the Park Commissioners shall select and 

take the said parts of streets within days 

after the approval of the same. No time being 
thus fixed, the Board may take for such selec- 
tion so much time as it may please, and the 
ordinance would remain in effect until the 
courts should determine that the Board has not 
made such selection within a reasonable time. 
I am imformed that the majority of the Com- 
missioners are opposed to the ordinance, and 
will be in no hurry to accept it. Litigation 
would therefore be very probably. 

Carter H. Harrison. 

Aid. Wickersham moved that the vote by 
which the ordinance was passed be reconsid- 
ered. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Burley moved that the subject matter be 
laid over temporarily. 

Aid. Hildreth moved to amend the motion by 
making it a special order for May 23, at 8 o'clock 
p. m. 

Aid. Burley accepted the amenment. 

Aid. Meier moved that the ordinance be 
passed, the veto of the Mayor t© the contrary 
notwithstanding. 

The Chair ruled that the question in order 
was the motion to pass. 

The question then being "shall the ordinance 
pass, the veto of the Mayor to the contrary 
notwithstanding," it was lost by yeas and nays 
as follows: 

Teas— Dixon, Sanders, Appleton, Shorey, 
Phelps, Hildreth, Smyth, Burley, Blair— 9.

The Mayor submitted the following me 

To (hi- ('/"/// Council of the City "/ CMeag 



.ssa^e : 
igo. 

Gkntmcmhn- In passing from my first into a 
second term of office as mayor of this great 
city, 1 wisii to express to the citizens of Chica- 
go my deep gratitude for the high honor they 
have conferred upon me, and to assure them 
that in re-electing me by so handsome a major- 
ity I feel most keenly that they have placed 
me under increased obligations to do my best 
to merit their confidence. A public man should 
seek popularity only by being worthy of it. It 
shall be my earnest endeavor so to win it. To 
deserve the applause of the people is my high- 
est ambition, to obtain it my greatest pleasure. 

It is with confessed pride, gentlemen, that I 
congratulate you and the people of Chicago 
upon the unexampled prosperity she has enjoy- 
ed during the past two years, and upon the 
proud financial position she occupies among 
the cities of the world; and I felicitate myself 
that this proud eminence has been attained, to 
a great extent, during my first term of office. 
But while saying this, I wish to acknowledge 
that it has been my good fortune to be at the 
head of the city's affairs during a brighter day 
than was vouchsafed to my immediate prede- 
cessors. At the same time I owe to my able 
assistants the statement that they have been 
prompt in taking advantage of this brighter 
day, and that they have not wasted the sun- 
shine. 

Permit me to call your attention to the con- 
dition in which I found the city affairs two 
years ago, and to contrast it with its present 
financial status. 

Then, and for several prior year®, the city, 
not having the means to pay her servants and 
to obtain supplies with cash, was forced to issue 
scrip or warrants on the Treasurer, to be paid 
from taxes to be collected many months after 
such issuance. 

In 1878, my predecessor— an economical offi- 
cer—issued about $2,238,000.00 of this scrip. 
This entailed upon employes a loss of from five 
to ten per cent, on the dollar, and upon the 
citv, through its contracts, a loss of from $150,- 
000"to $200,000 per annum. 

By a system of most rigid economy I have 
been enabled to reduce the issuance of scrip to 
less than $1,500,000 in 1879 and in 1880 to less 
than $590,000. 

In 1881 I hope to escape the blot of scrip en- 
tirely. For twenty-one months every employe 
has been paid in cash. 

The city cannot legally borrow a dollar, and 
yet, not having ready money to meet her semi- 
annual interest, she was compelled to hypothe- 
cate the interest coupons when due, and to pay 
a heavy commission for carrying them until 
taxes could be collected. These illegal com- 
missions eost her each year from $50,000 to 
$70,000. 

Since 1879 we have promptly met our interest 
without borrowing or paying one cent of com- 
missions. Two years ago the city owed $249,000 
of what was known as Hayes-Colvin certifi- 
cates. These the courts had declared illegal. 
But our good name demanded that they should 
be paid. We have taken them all up, paying 
them in full, together with interest, the whole 
amounting to $275,643.00. 

In 1880 we paid off $291,000 of 7 100 water bonds, 
and refunded $490,000 of 6 and 7 per cent, sew- 
erage bonds, with a like amount of 1)6 per cent, 
bonds, which we sold at over 2 per cent, pre- 
mium, and on the first of April of this year we 
refunded $843,500 of 7 per cent, municipal bonds 
with a like amount of 4 per cent, bonds, which 
command to-day about 4 per cent, premium. 

The annual savings of interest thus effected 
amounts to $54,215. 

In former years the sinking fund had become 
depleted by the amount of $236,024; this we 
have restored. 

From the appropriations of 1879 and 1880 we 



May 9,] 



[1881. 



saved $1,050,000. This heavy saving, added to 
taxes of prior years collected, and to cash from 
various sources, enabled us to contribute to 
the appropriation for 1881, $550,000, and yet left 
in the general fund nearly $1,500,000 as a re- 
serve to meet current expenses and to enable 
us to avoid the issuance of scrip. 

This financial showing T make, gentlemen, 
n©t boastfully, but to enable you and the peo- 
ple to enjoy with me a feeling of justifiable 
pride. 

From savings of prior years we gave to the 
appropriation for this year $550,000. We cannot 
hope to make like savings from the present ap- 
propriations. Prices of every material and of 
wages are on the increase. It will probably 
take everv dollar of the appropriation to run 
the city." You have allowed only two and a 
half per cent, for probable deficiency in col- 
lection of taxes. Last year you allowed ten 
per cent. We may find ourselves on this ac- 
count saddled with a deficiency. We can hope 
for but little from back taxes. I therefore 
earnestly recommend that you will look square- 
ly in the face the probable necessity for raising 
a largely increased amount of revenue from 
licenses. 

There is no reason why a poor peddler or ex- 
pressman should pay a license to enable him to 
ply a trade which barely keeps his wife and 
child from starvation, while hundreds of deal- 
ers whose occupations bring them princely 
ineomes should go scot free. There are occu 
pations of a most profitable character requir- 
ing no capital which the assessor can find, 
which could bear a very considerable price for 
license. There are other occupations which 
increase the fire hazard of the whole city to a 
great extent, which wear away our paved 
streets, many of those pursuing w r hich have 
accumulated vast fortunes within a few years, 
which could pay a larger revenue to the city 
than do its 3,000 saloons, and yet not feel de- 
pleted bank accounts. 

The city will need something from many of 
these occupations to enable it to run decently 
next year. 

Why should they go free, while the poor 
widow has to pay a license for the privilege of 
furnishing the rich with cooks and chamber- 
maids, or the cripple for the privilege of earn- 
ing his living at an apple stand ? I earnestly 
urge you to provide for the collecting for 
licenses from every character of occupation 
permitted by the city's charter. 

THE DEPARTMENT OP FINANCE. 

The management of the finance ,oi a great 



city like Chicago, laboring, as it has under pe$ 
culiar embarassments, is not an easy task. Few 
men fully impressed with its duties and re 
sponsibilities would undertake it. The choice 
for this deparment has proved a fortunate one, 
and when I say that a more earnest, zealous 
and efficient Comptroller than its present in- 
cumbent has not filled the office, I only re-echo 
the opinion of leading financial men who have 
had any dealings with the city. He has ably 
assisted in the carrying out the line of policy 
which I deemed the utmost important in a scrip- 
ridden community. Through hia energetic ef- 
forts cash payments were resumed and my aim 
realized. 

This change effected a saving to city employes 
of thousands of dollars per annum, and enabled 
us to make better bargains for the city's work. 

With the same prudent management we 
shall continue on the cash bas'8 and place the 
city in a position where it will never be obliged 
to go back to a depreciated paper, and stand, as 
it were, hat in hand, awaiting the pleasure and 
service of others. I refer you to the Comp- 
troller's report for a detailed statement of the 
city's finances up to January 1st, 1881. 

THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS. 

Under the immediate eye and control of this 
department rests all work of a public charac- 
ter. Without a vigilant care and the strictest 
honesty thousands of dollars would be annually 
squandered, and rings of a most dangerous 
character fostered. The record of this depart- 
ment has demonstrated that its present head 
thoroughly understands the requirements of 
his position, and has rendered the public signal 
service by his firm course in awarding contracts 
upon their merits, and not through favoritism. 
Strict business principles have prevailed, and 
everv contractor has been fairly and honestly 
served. In consequence there has been a most 
free and healthy competition for all public 
works. 

The rings that predominated before have been 
routed at every turn. Their various attempts 
to assert themselves in important contracts 
have been frustrated, and the city has been a 
gainer thereby by thousands of dollars. More 
work has been accomplished for less money 
than the same class of work has cost before, 
and small appropriations have answered where 
larger ones would have been required were the 
old order of things in vogue. Of the improved 
order of things no better evidence can be fur- 
nished than the following comparative state- 
ments for the years 1877, 1878, 1879 and 1880:

Nearly two years ago I earnestly urged the 
Councifto take immediate steps for the erec- 
tion of two additional pumping engines at the 
West side pumping works. I again called your 
attention to it a year ago. I have found no rea- 
son to change my mind as to the urgency of 
this work. Should one or more of the present 
engines break, and no one can be sure that they 
will not, then an outraged people, suffering for 
water, which should be given them as freely 
as air, will call your supine neglect by the 
name crime. 

I believe the wooden period for street paving 
should pass away from Chicago. Our central 
and heavily trafficked streets need something 
more durable than sappy pine, or cedar blocks 
cut from burnt-over swamps. Granite and Me- 
dina sandstone can be had without stint. 

The beauty and health of the city require 
that such pavements should become the rule 
and not the exception in the heart of the city. 
A few nervous gentlemen may object to the 
noise, but they should remember that the mu- 
sic of the pine covered forests is not compata- 
ble with the busy traffic of a mighty commer- 
cial city. 

Ashland avenue, paved nine years since, and 
now nearly as smooth as when first improved, 
and Jackson street, which has stood the test of 
a severe winters frost, and is to-day crowded 
by persons testing the metal of their readsters, 
prove the great superiority of Macadam over 
wooden blocks for outside residence streets. 
It may be objected that they are muddy when 
wet and dusty when dry, but tney are wet 



only a short period of the year, and properly 
constructed sprinklers keep down the dust at 
a comparitively small cost. 

I recommend that you will hereafter throw a 
cold shoulder to the w T ooden block contractor 
for such streets, and that you will understand 
that private contracts for paving streets are 
less for the interests of the city than of a few 
who engineer them through. Stone block pave- 
ment for the heavily trafficked streets, and 
good Macadam for outside streets, where rapid 
pid locomotion is desirable, and wide tired 
trucks and wagons, should be your care in the 
future. 

THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. 

In speaking of this department, I can say 
that it is upon a most efficient and satisfactory 
footing. Less crime has been prevalent than 
heretofore and the morals of the city were 
never in better condition. The chiefs of this 
department have rendered me prompt and ener- 
getic service, and criminals have found it safer 
and more comfortable to remain away from the 
city. What has been done can be best shown 
by the statement that while the recoveries of 
stolen property for the years 1877 and 1878 were 
within $70,207 of the value of property reported 
stolen, they were only $31,754 below the value 
of stolen property in 1879 and 1880. Besides the 
value of stolen propeity has been less for the 
past two years by $69,444. 

When I came into office two years ago there 
had existed for years in this city an organized 
gang of bank robbers, the most successful and 



May 9,] 



ri88i. 



daring of any in the whole country. They com- 
mitted no known crime here, but making this 
their headquarters, raided banks throughout 
the union. They defied the police or silenced 
them, and boasted that they could not be held m 
jail In July, 1879, they committed a bold rob- 
bery in Galesburgand came here to enjoy their 
plunder. I determined that Chicago should 
not harbor outlaws to prey upon our neighbors. 
By careful working, the Police Department 
found evidence against these fellows, and sent 
some of them to the scene of their crime. After 
long delays of the law and against the machi- 
nations of corrupt but able friends, one of the 
«-ang is in our penitentiary for eight years; 
another, escaping to Canada, is incarcerated for 
several years; a third has been in jail in Gales- 
burg for many months awaiting his trial, and 
the remainder are scattered and dare not again 
to come here. 

The destruction of this gang has done much 
to terrify other such organizations and to keep 
them from making this their home. There is 
not to-day a single organized gang of outlaws 
in Chicago. 

In connection with this improved state of 
affairs I desire to say that the telephone police 
alarm stations have proved a most valuable 
adjunct to the department. We began with 
its introduction in the West Twelfth street 
district, which was overrun with desperadoes, 
roughs and footpads, and finding it so useful in 
summoning police to apprehend this class, that 
we have so extended the system to other por- 
tions of the city that districts hitherto com- 
paratively unprotected are now thoroughly 
under police surveillance. There have been 
established already some ninety alarm stations, 
and had the City Council set a larger appropri- 
ation than it did we should cover other still 
remote and unprotected sections. But for this 
change the present police force would be en- 
tirely inadequate to meet the demands of the 
city Our force is the smallest of any large 
city in the country. The present number com- 
posing it is almost the same as it was when we 
had a little over half of our present population. 
Increased efficiency and telephonic communi- 
cations have rendered the force doubly service- 
able and aided in a very material and percept- 
able decrease in crime. 

For this telephonie innovation and improve- 
ment tipon old police methods we are chiefly 
indebted to Professor John P. Barrett and Mr. 
Austin J. Doyle, who'originated and perfected 
the system. The system contemplates connec- 
tions with business houses and private resi- 
dences, and already several have availed them- 
selves of its benefit to be in a position to re- 
ceive prompt police assistance in case of an 
emergency. It has already proved itself of 
incalculable value to the department, and will 
be made to cover the city as rapidly as means 
will permit. I have directed the Superinten- 
dents of the Police and Fire Departments to 
make as large savings as possible in their re- 
spective departments, and to apply the same to 
an extension of the system. I hope in this 
way to cover to some extent the mistake made 
by the Council in not making a more liberal 
appropriation for the complete extension of the 
system over the city. 

The success of our Police Department is the 
more striking when we contrast its number 
with that of other cities. The disparity may 
be shown by the following:

Clt V- latum. Force. u ^ cer - Hants.

Baltimore.... 300.000 594 1 to 500 

Chicago 503.000 390 1 to 1,289 



THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

In looking over the records of this depart- 
ment for the past four years, I find that it has 
not only coped more successfully with fires, 
but kept down the average loss during the 
past two years at a point below that of the 
two preceeding years, in spite of the greater 
number of conflagrations in the latter period. 
In 1877 and 1878 there were 923 fires, and the 
amount of loss involved was $1,351,314.00, mak- 
ing the average loss $2,989, while in 1879 and 
1880 there were 1606 fires and a loss of $1,707,898, 
making the average loss only $1,980. It will be 
accordingly noted from this that while there 
were 683 more fires during the past two years 
than during the two preceeding years, the 
average loss has been $1,009 less for the past 
two years. This speaks volumes of praise for 
the effective working of the force as at pres- 
ent constituted. 

HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 

No department of the city has shown more 
efficiency during my term of office than this. 
The city as grown in population with great ra- 
pidity. It has been impossible for the appli- 
ances necessary to health to keep pace with 
this growth. While the population of the city 
is that of one of centuries growth, the street 
pavements and sewerage system has been nec- 
essarily that of a city of two generations of 
men. 

Many of the manufacturing interests have 
extended with a rapidity vastly beyond the 
city's growth, some of these interests are 
of a character ordinarily offensive to the 
senses and supposed to be injurious to the 
health. A quarter of a century ago there were 
packed in Chicago 56,000 hogs, during the last 
year over 6,000,000. The slaughtering of other 
animals has increasod almost as rapidly. Near- 
ly all of this growth has been within the past 
decade. 

The great amount of refuse matter from this 
vast horde of animals has to be taken care of. 
The most of it is utilized. This naturally 
gives out offensive odors and if not promptly 
attended to, breeds disease. 

For years the summer air was offensive, that 
of autumn and winter often almost intolerable. 
Some of the finest portions of the city were of- 
ten times for weeks unfit for delicate people to 
live in. By a steady perseverance, knowing no 
favor and fearing no opposition, fighting in the 
courts, abused and vilified,— the head of the 
health department has done his duty. While 
he has fought stenches, he has stood by me in 
upholding our great manufacturing interests. 
Consequently it can be said to-day that there 
has been nothing to offend the nostrils within 
eighteen months. 

People are absolutely forgetting there ever 
was a Bridgeport stink, and yet the great in- 
dustries which formerly caused these stenches 
are growing day by day, until they are become 
one of the wonders of the world and their 
proprietors, who formerly cursed us for forcing 
them at great expense to abate and ^prevent 
nuisances, are to-day our warmest supporters. 

Our people, easily alarmed by a sensational 
press, make great outcries when the water 
happens to be less clear than crystal, and de- 
mand that we spend some ten millions to get a 
new water supply, that they may then growl at 
the cost which such outlay will entail. In 1877, 
for a few days, the water supply was some- 
what defiled, and lately it has been roily for 
some ten days. But even during these worst 
days Chicago's water was better than that in 
everyday use in many American cities, and pure 
compared to that of any of the large Euro- 
pean cities. A change from one kind of water 
to another nearly always effects one unpleas- 
antly and sometimes injuriously. No one from 
any of our inland countries, where hard lime- 



May 9,] 



[1881. 



stone water comes from spring or well, can go 
from Niagara to Montreal by boat without suf- 
fering disagreeable efleots. The effects are, 
however, temporary. And yet the water of 
Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence is of 
crystal clearness. 

The tlood pouring from an overflowed country 
lately caused a changed water to come from 
our crib and affected our people temporarily. 
It was injurious to very weak people and 
caused strong ones (to their bodily discom- 
fort) Co take to so-called mineral water or to 
indulge unusually in beer or liquor, and at 
once reporters seeking items find doctors eager 
to cry " poison in our water." A little precau- 
tion tor a week or so every few years can pre- 
vent our people from suffering, and during all 
the remainder of their lives here they enjoy 
the coolest and purest water of the inhabitants 
of any large city on the face of the globe. 

Some people who have been to my knowledge 
horrified during the past ten days at Chicago's 
water, are now going with or sending their fam- 
ilies to Europe, where they can in no city get a 
glass of water much purer than can be dipped 
up inside of our breakwater. Over there they 
will drink mineral water and wine, and will 
spend thousands of dollars to have the oppor- 
tunity of doing so in foreign lands. 

Their steward's fees aboard ship would have 
purchased pure water from Waukesha for the 
entire time during which the water of the city 
has been lately roiled. 

The following statement will show that no 
one need flee from Chicago to find a more 
healthy city:

GAMBLING. 

One of the questions which has agitated our 
citizens and the public press recently is that of 
gambling. On this subject I have been severe- 
ly criticised in some quarters and in other quar- 
ters as eminently respectable I have been en- 
dorsed in the position I have assumed. If not 
openly, it has been very generally tacitly ad- 
mitted that it is, impossible to thoroughly 
eradicate the evil, but as to the exact course to 
pursue towards it, a diversity of opinions 
exists among those whe have fully examined 
this phrase of social life. 

We cannot, "some say," "rid the community 
of gambling, but how can the evil be reduced 
to its minimum effect ? There seems to be the 
rub. Those who have so rigorously cried out 
for its extermination have failed to suggest 
any possible or practicable plan by which the 
desired end can be accomplished. In their blind 
zeal they seem to forget the essential results 
of all attempts, viz: That every effort at its 
annihilation has been attended with a dismal 
failure. They are by no means left without 
practical examples of the results of such 
efforts. If they would only pause in their 
frenzy and direct their attention to the time 
sporting or club houses were presumptively 
closed, they would easily recall facts that indi- 
cated that not only the private precincts of 
hotels and public buildings, but fashionable 
resorts were invaded and games of chance in- 
dulged in. There, free from and unobserved 
by the guardians of the law, young as well as 
old were " taken in and fleeced." A few 



wealthy gamblers managed to run their places 
behind lacked doors and by means of a liberal 
feeing, officers intrusted to see that there was 
no gambling, blinked at violations of the law, 
passed on and kept the central authorities in 
ignorance of their existence. When it was 
finally discovered that one place was in full 
blast," the police made a descent upon it, an 
explosion of powder ensued, and the case went 
into the state courts, where Judge McAllister 
held substantially that police officers had no 
authority to break in the doors of places where 
it was not absolutely certain that gambling was 
being regularly conducted therein. Thisdecision 
was looked upon as a victory by the gamblers 
and gambling shops opened, with various self- 
imposed restrictions, in different section! of the 
city. Ropers-in flourished extensively and 
gambling held undisputed sway behind doubly 
barred and screened doors. Subsequently the 
owners of these places put a bold front to their 
vocation, and in view of former experience, 
the then existing administration evinced no 
special inclination to break them up. They 
were accordingly in a high tide of prosperity 
long before I entered upon the mayoralty, and 
the authorities were fully cognizant at all 
times of their location. 

Considering what the results had been, I 
came to the conclusion on becoming Mayor that 
the evil must be kept within proper bounds and 
restrictions. More than that, I determined to re- 
strict these houses to the central portions of the 
city, where they could be closely watched and 
kept in check. By this course of procedure I 
had in view the easy and unrestricted entrance 
of either the police to detect sharp practices 
by the gamblers, keep minors out and find any 
crooked person who might seek its enchant- 
ments, or of business men who might desire to 
see whether an employe was squandering 
money surreptitiously taken from his funds. 
By such course as I have thus outlined I have 
had the endorsement of a large number of cit- 
zens, and the results have been far better than 
they would have been under different condi- 
tions. Under the apparent rigid rule in vogue 
in 1873, there were in the city forty-four gam- 
bling establishments, and twenty odd bunko 
places; in 1877 over thirty gambling houses 
and a dozen or more bunko rooms, while during 
1880 there have not been more than seventeen 
of the former and not a single bunko establish- 
ment. I notice the correspondent of the Tri- 
bune says there are in Washington City, with a 
population less than one-third of that of Chi- 
cago, from twenty-five to thirty gambling 
house in full blast, and yet he says they pull 
them frequently and break up their furniture. 
The present state of affairs here is due to re- 
strictions, and while a great number of com- 
plaints came to my office shortly after my in- 
auguration, there have been not more than a half 
dozen within the past eighteen months. The plan 
of keeping these places in the heart of the city 
enables the police officers to learn where brace 
boxes are played upon unsuspecting victims. 
Such houses are promptly dealt with. Those 
that are run are put upon their good behavior, 
minors are excluded, and those who must play 
protected from the tricks of dealers; and games 
of a character calculated to attract the man of 
small means, and the young are being etirely 
prevented. 

I am not defending gambling per se, but if my 
position is wrong in dealing with it from a 
practical standpoint, the people have their 
remedy. They can appeal to an authority 
higher than mine; and strange it is that such 
citizens and newspapers as have assailed me 
have not also directed their batteries toward 
that authority. Those who think my plan not 
the best have a State law under which any one 
so disposed can take his hand in suppressing 
gambling.

I fear however, that Mr. Lincoln was not 
mistaken when he said that "statutory enact- 
ments can't turn a calf's toil into a third hind 
leg" The fireside, the lyceum and the well 
stocked public library will do more than laws 
to suppress social evils. 

But those who differ with me have a law un- 
der which a citizen, feeling that the communi- 
ty has been outraged by the existence of gam- 
bling, can go and swear out a warrant and 
secure satisfaction. The Grand Jury are open 
to his complaints, and even the assistance of 
the State's Attorney can be invoked. 

In conclusion, I desire to return my thanks 
to the members of the outgoing Council and to 
the various heads of the different departments 
for their kind assistance and courtesies, and to 
ask the indulgence and aid of the incoming 
Council in all measures looking to the welfare 
and prosperity of the city.

SPECIAL ORDER. 

The Chair directed that the special order, the 
report of the select committee on resolution of 
Aid. Hildreth, concerning extension of the 
water works, be now taken up. 

Aid. Oullerton moved to concur in the report 
and pass the resolution. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following are the resolution and report: 

Whereas, The water supply of the city 
of Chicago, must in the near future 
be largely increased, and whereas 
the water has occasionally been impure and is 
liable from sewerage and other sources to be 
affected in the future, and whereas the only 
relief that will be permanent will be to take 
the water from some point so far northward 
that it cannot be contaminated by our sewer- 
age, and whereas the city of Chicago cannot 
raise the money to build such works without 
the power to issue bonds, and whereas such 
bonds cannot be issued without an amendment 
for that purpose to the constitution of this 
State, and whereas as the State Legislature is 
about to adjourn it is necessary that immediate 
action should be taken by this Council if they 
deem it proper to begin the construction of new 
water works, therefore be it 

Resolved, That the Legislature of this State 
be and is hereby requested by the City Council 
of the City of Chicago to submit to the people 
of this State, at the next general election, an 
amendment to the State constitution authoriz- 
ing the city of Chicago to issue bonds to the 
amount of five millions of dollars to be expend- 
ed for the purpose of furnishing a supply of 
pure water to said city. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago m Council assembled : 

Your Committee to whom was referred a 
resolution of Aid. Hildreth asking, the passage 
of a joint resolution by the State Legislature 
for an amendment to the constitution of the 
State for the purpose of allowing the city to 
issue $5,000,000 of bonds for the extension of 
the water works, having had the same under 
advisement, submit the following report and 
recommend the passage of the resolution. 

The question of a supply of pure water to 
cities has been so often discussed that there is 
no necessity ©f your Committee dilating upon 
it. A greater supply we must have in the near 
future. 

New York City, when smaller than Chicago 
now is, expended twenty-eight millions of dol- 
lars to get a supply from the Croton river, and 



has expended many millions since to increase 
the quantity and improve the.quality. 

Liverpool \jy oposes to bring water from Wales, 
that the city may have pure water. 

Philadeldhia, so celebrated for its works, 
which gives an ample supply, is now consider- 
ing the expenditure of twenty-five millions of 
dollars to bring pure water from a distance of 
thirty or more miles. 

Chicago has an unlimited supply of water, 
purer than that of any city in the world, within 
easy reach, and the only question is what is 
the best means of making it available ? 

The details of any plan must be prepared by 
competent engineers. 

It is evident to any one giving the least con- 
sideration to the subject that our object is at- 
tainable by going North of the city, the dis- 
tance to be decided by examination, but from 
the Government surveys the depth of water 
increases near shore North of Grosse Point, and 
the observation of lake men is that the water 
is much less roily during storms than in front 
of the city, there being but ten feet increase 
of depth at four miles beyond the crib. 

If we go further into the lake the distance 
must be considerable, as the bad water from the 
river this spring extended three miles and a 
half beyond the present crib, and the ice some 
nine miles from shore, as well as North and 
Northeast. 

Your Committee belives that it is due to the 
citizens of Chicago that this Council shall take 
such action as will provide a supply of pure 
water and from a source that will ensure it 
against interruption and contamination. 

Your Committee further believes that the 
source of supply is in Lake Michigan, and that 
it can be reached at a point within a reasonable 
distance and at a comparatively moderate ex- 
pense. 

Two places have been suggested to your 
Committee, but the choice of either or any 
other place must be the result of examinations 
and estimates made by competent engineers. 
j" One plan is to seek the high ground North of 
Chicago, where reservoirs can be constructed 
at such an elevation as to give the necessary 
head in the city. 

This plan involves the conducting the water 
in iron pipes, having sufficient capacity to fur- 
nish the supply after allowing for friction, but 
the cost of such a plan may be objected on 
account of its expense. A rough estimate by 
an engineer puts the cost of this plan at ten to 
twelve millions of dollars. 

A second plan is to run a tunnel of ten feet 
diameter from the present pumping works to 
a point east of, or east and north of Grosse 
Point, or perhaps, better, two tunnels of eight 
feet diameter each, which, though costing 
somewhat more than a single ten foot tunnel, 
would have the advantage of giving a larger 
supply, and in case of accident to, or the 
stoppage of one, it could be examined and 
cleaned or repaired while the other would fur- 
nish a supply. 

The first plan would be virtually an aban- 
donment of our present pumping works, while 
the second plan contemplates their continued 
use as now. 

The second plan could be carried out with 
great facility by working nnder the land, thus 
enabling the contractors to sink frequent work- 
ing shafts and working two forces from each 
shaft. 

By retaining permanently shafts each mile, 
gates can be put in so that it could be pumped 
out and cleaned or repaired by sections. 

As a guide to the cost of this work the cost of 
the seven foot tunel is taken as a basis, and 
the difference between the seven and eight 
feet is balanced by the advantages presented 
by working on land. 

The following will give an approximate esti- 
mate: 



May 16,] 



11 



[1881. 



The seven feet, or new tunnel, cost per lineal 
foot, twenty six dollars, equal to $137,280 dollars 

Sermile. 
ne eight foot tunnel, at the same 
rate per mile, for 12 miles would be $l.(>;>/..5t>o 
A second eight foot tunnel would be. 1.657.360 

For Two eight feet tunnels §3.314.720 

Allow for increased cost of materials 
and labor '20 per cent $ (.(>•_'. ii-t-t 

$8,977,664 

\dd to this the expense of a crib of 
sufficient capacity and strength.... $ 500.000 

Add also two miles for contingencies 
of route, and possibly to reach the 
best point for a crib, at the same 
rate of cost 329.4/2 

And we have a total estimate of.... $4.S07.136 
It it the belief of vour Committee that 
5 000,000 of dollars will cover all the cost of a 
work that would bring our water supply free 
from all contamination from any source, and 
free from the constant obstruction by ice 
everv winter. 

The United States surrey ana soundings show 
that a suitable depth of water for a crib is 
found much nearer shore at and North of Grosse 
Point than at any other point South of there. 

During each and every winter, and especially 
the last, the crib has been kept free from ice 
bv much labor and expense. 

"During the past winter the ice field has ex- 
tended about nine miles North and East, and 
reliable observers state that North of Grosse 
Point the lake has been clear of floating ice, 
showing that the ice is driven South until it is 
held bv this shore. If the present tunnel sys- 
tem is extended two or four miles further into 
the lake it will not be clear of floating ice, and 
at such a distance from shore it would be next 
to impossible to keep the communication with 
it open, as it has been found to be imperatively 
necessary. . sJ .,. 

as to the question of creating an additional 
debt for the water supply, it seems to your 
committee there should be no objection, inas- 
much as the expenditure is a legitimate one for 
an investment, and there is no reason why 
those who come after should not bear their 
proportion of the expenditure made as well for 
their benefit as for our own. If done by taxa- 
tion, the property at its present low values 
would have to pay for work to last fifty and 
perhaps one hundred years, for the benefit and 
use of the same property when it will be 
doubled or quadrupled in value. 

To exemplify the matter, we will look at the 
past and see what results have been accom- 
plished by the creation of a debt: 
The total debt of the Water De- 
partment, as per report of 1880, is $3,957,000.00 
Represented by 6 and 7 per cent. 

bonds. 
The total cost of the Water Works, 
including land, buildings, en- 
gines, pipes, crib and tunnels, by 
the same report, is 8,802,725.10 

The total revenues, per report of 

1880 . . $11,200,658.61 

Total expense and interest, per 

same report 9,434,190.93 

Surplus $1,765,967.68 

The revenue has paid the interest on the 
debt, all operating expenses, bought land and 
engines, and paid for the last tunnel and ex- 
tended the system of pipes very largely. 

From the surplus of $374,853.62 

There was used for the extension of 
water pipes 119,851.00 

Leaving net surplus of .$255,002.62 



Now if the water debt \\ as increased by $5,000,- 
000 of bonds at 4 per cent, or even 4><< per cent., 
the showing of 1879 would do as much as was 
then done and leave a surplus, without consid- 
ering that t here must bo each year a consider- 
able increase of revenue. 

^ our committee believe that the contest 
made against the sewage of the city passing 
through tho canal will be renewed year by 
year by the people on the line of the Des 
Plaines and Illinois rivers, with the influence 
of so large a section, there can be do doubt that 
the Legislature will provide that Chicago must 
otherwise provide an outlet for its sewage. 

If this is done Lake Michigan is our only 
practicable deposit for it, and in such case we 
shall be compelled to seek a source for our 
water other than in a line from our city so 
easily affected from the river. 

Should such a result ensue, it is evident that 
Hyde Park will be compelled to ask a connec- 
tion with our water supply for the use of their 
town, including South Chicago, and the town 
of Lake. 

In such case the revenue from our water 
supply would warrant the expenditure of 
double the amount that is now proposed. 

The making a ship canal, of the Illinois and 
Michigan, is a work of such magnitude that it 
can onlv be undertaken by the General Gov- 
ernment, and if begun it will be a work of 
several years.

REPORTS OF CITY OFFICERS. 

The City Comptroller submitted a report in 
answer to a resolution offered by Aid. Lawler 



concerning the Exposition building, which was 
ordered 

Published and referred to the Committee on 
Judiciary when appointed. 

The following is the report : 

City of Chicago, i 

Department of Finance, May 16, 1881. \ 
To His Honor the Mayor and Aldermen in City 
Council assembled: 

Referring to your resolution adopted on the 
2d day of tne present month, "concerning the 
use of the lake front by the exposition building, 
and requesting the City Comptroller to com- 
municate to the Council at iis next regular 
meeting his views upon said matter, and inform 
the Council what amount should, in his opinion, 
be required to be paid for the use of said 
grounds, together with such other information 
as he may deem necessary to communicate," I 
report: That the action of the City Council 
permitting the construction of the exposition 
building, and other proceedings relating there- 
to, will be found upon pages 187, 193, and 486 of 
the published proceedings of your honorable 
body, for the years 1872 and 1873; upon pages 
53, 104, 137, and 490 of the proceedings for the 
years 1873, 1874, 1875, and 1876; upon page 255 of 
the proceedings for the years 1877 and 1878; and 
upon pages 72 and 73 of the proceedings of 1879 
and 1880. 

Tne action of the City Council, April 28, 1873, 
provided for the construction of the building 
under the direction of the Board of Public 
Works, limiting its existence to May 12, 1874. 
Subsequently, May 23, of the latter year, this 
limitation was extended to May 1, 1876, and 
never further continued. 

On the 25th day of January, 1875, the Judici- 
ary Committee of the City Council made a re- 
port (concurred in) upon a proposal to permit 
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company to 
occupy a section of' the edifice, recommending 
that such proposal be "placed on file, as the 
whole matter had been referred to the Law 
Department with instructions to take action." 
We cannot find that the Law Department acted 
in the premises. 

On the 27th day of December, 1875, a resolu- 
tion was presented to the Council, and placed 
on file, asking that the Inter-State Exposition 
Association pay to the City $5,000, being one- 
half of the proceeds of a walking match. 

On Dec. 3, 1877, a resolution was offered in- 
structing the Department of Public Works to 
take immediate steps for the removal of the 
railroad company and other parties occupying 
the exposition building. We do not find that 
any attention was given to this mandate of the 
Council. 

June 10, 1878, your Judiciary Commitee 
offered a resolution (adopted) that the 
directors of the Inter-State Exposition 
Association be notified that the occupancy 
of the premises by the Baltimore & Ohio 
railroad was in violation of the terms upon 
which said Association was permitted to use 
the premises, and it was further resolved that 
the Department of Public Works be directed to 
take possession of the building and eject said 
railroad company. It does not appear that any 
notice was taken of the order. 

I have given the foregoing as matters of in- 
formation. 

If the premises had been devoted to the ob- 
jects contemplated by the exposition organiza- 
tion, I am of the opinion that it would not be 
insisted that compensation should be made to 
the city for the use of the ground occupied; 
but as the association is receiving large reve- 
nues from the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, and 
from various organizations and exhibitions, I 
am clearly of the opinion that an equitable pro- 
portion thereof should be devoted to the uses 
of the municipality. If, however, such propo- 
sition is declined, it is our belief that your 
honorable body should direct that the city gov-

eminent enter at once upon the possession of 
the premises, as by ordinance provided. 
Respect Fullj submit ted, 

Theodore T. Gurnet, 

Comptroller. 

ALSO, 

The City Comptroller submitted a report 
covering an opinion of the Corporation Counsel 
on the appropriation for Lighting streets with 
other material than gas, which was ordered 

Published and referred to the Committee on 
Finance, when appointed. 

The following is the report: 

City of Chicago. j 

Department of Finance, May 16, 1881. j 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in City Council assembled: 

l inclose herewith the opinion of the Corpora- 
tion Counsel upon the appropriations for the 
fiscal year for lighting streets with other ma- 
terial than gas. 

In view of the diificulties surrounding my 
duties in this regard, I ask for yonr further 
instructions, and would suggest that you deter- 
mine upon the ttreets to be lighted, and also 
that special assessments be levied tor lamp- 
posts on such streets. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Theodore T. Gurnet, 

Comptroller. 

The opinion of the Corporation Counsel is as 
follows: 

City Law Department, I 
Chicago, May 14, 188L j 
T. T. Gurnet, Esq., 

City Comptroller: 

Dear Sir— The appropriation of $20,000 for 
lighting streets with material other than gas 
(Council proceedings 1881, p. 542) provides that 
one-half of the appropriation shall be used for 
"lighting streets where assessments for lamp- 
posts have been made and paid and no gas- 
mains vet laid." This language evidently con- 
templated that no part of one-half of the 
appropriation shall be used for the purchase or 
erection of lamp-posts, but that the assess- 
ments made and paid for lamp-posts shall be 
used for that purpose in lighting the streets 
when such assessments have been made, and 
where no gas-mains have been laid. In other 
words, that in lighting with material other than 
gas streets in which no gas-mains are laid, and 
where special assessments have been made and 
paid for lamp-posts, the special assessments are 
to be used for the purchase of suitable lamp- 
pests for lighting, exclusive of the lamp-posts. 

Taking into consideration the order passed 
March 14, 1883, authorizing you to enter into a 
contract for the erection of street lamps, and 
lighting the streets, etc., in connection with the 
appropriation, it is clear that $10,000, or one-half 
the appropriation, may be expended for the 
expense of lighting, including the expense of 
erecting lamp-posts on streets where no assess- 
ments have been made for lamp-posts, and 
where no gas-mains have been laid. 

The order of March 14, 1881, and the appropri- 
ation hill, leaves the selection of the streets to 
be lighted in your discretion; that is, taking 
the class of streets described in the order and 
appropriation bill, it is left to your discretion 
which of them shall he lighted. I think it 
would have been the better and safer course for 
the Council to have designated the streets to 
be lighted. 

Respectfully, 

Francis Adams, 
Corporation Counsel. 

The Clerk presented the report of the Com- 
missioners to make estimate for three lamp 
posts on Locust street, from N. Clark street to 
N. La Salle street.

The following is the opinion: 
To the Honorable City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Tour honorable body passed, June 13, 1881, 
a resolution requesting an opinion from me on 
the following question, viz : Whether the City 
Council possessed the authority to compel the 
gas companies of this city to lay down gas 
mains wbere so ordered to do by the Council. 

I am of the opinion that the City Council 
I possesses no such power. The Chicago Gas 



Light and Coke Company was incorporated by 
act approved February 32, 1849, which was 
amended by act approved February 9, 1855, and 
the People's Gas Light and Coke Company 
was incorporated by act of February 12, 1855, 
amended by act of August 30, 1858, and Febru- 
ary 2, 1865. 

Laws and Ord. 1873, p. 122-176. 

The gas companies do not derive their power 
to lay gas mains and pipes in the public streets. 
That power is expressly conferred by the acts 
of the General Assembly. 

Laws and Ord. 1873, p. 172, Sec. 2, p. 174-5, Sees. 
2 and 5. 

The extent of the power of the Council is to 
establish proper regulations for the protec- 
tion of the streets and to prevent damages, etc. 
Respectfully, 

Francis Adams, 
Corporation Counsel. 

The Superintendent of Buildings submitted 
a report in answer to a resolution inquiring by

Agreed to. 

Aid. Everett moved that it be made the spe-

Agreed to. 

The following is the report: 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago, m Common Council assembled. 

Your Committee on Fire and Water, to whom 
was referred the order for additional pumping 
engines to be located in the West Division of 
the city, having had the same under advise- 
ment, beg leave to report: 

That your committee have given the question 
of additional pumping engines their careful 
consideration; also, a committee from the Citi- 
zens' Association appeared before your com- 
mittee to urge the adoption of their plans for 
central pumping works. After hearing from 
their engineer, Mr. Jackson, as to the advan- 
tage and need of central works, your commit- 
tee feel that they would not be justified from 
the existing facts in recommending the adop- 
tion of their plans. We find that by construct- 
ing central works, as per plans of Citizens' 
Association, the city would be compelled to 
buy appropriate grounds, construct a branch 
tunnel connecting with the present West Side 
tunnel, build a new stand-pipe, buildings, 
smoke-stacks, etc., etc., all of which would 
cost, as per estimate of engineer, at least 
$727,919, when, by building the pair of engines 
of the capacity set forth in the order presented 
to your honorable body at the West Pumping 
Works, where a large portion of the expense 
necessary to locating the engines has already 
been incurred and arrangements made which 
would cause a great loss of money to the city 
were the original plans not carried out, they 
can be erected and put in operation at a cost not 
exceeding $373,269, thereby making a difference 
in the outlay of $354,680 in favor of the West 
Side Pumping Works, and at the same time in- 
crease the water supply of the city over 30 per 
cent, ; and under the present almost completed 
system of large water mains, connecting the 
works in the North Division with those in the 
West Division, a uniform pressure equal to 
that gained by building works in the centre of 
the city can be maintained where most needed. 

Your Committee would most respectfully call 
the attention of the Council to the opinion of 
the Law Department on this subject, published 
on page 446, Council proceedings, dated March 
2, 1881, where it is distinctly stated that the 
Council has not the power, owing to the small 
surplus of the Water Fund on hand, to contract 
for buying a site, but will have only money by 
the time the engines are completed and ready 
for delivery two years from this date to pay for 
them, estimating their cost at $250,000. Your 
Committee would therefore recommend the 
passage of the accompanying order prepared by 
the Law Department. 

J. D. Everett, 
O. D. Wetherell, 
John Murphy, 
Thos. Purcell, 

C. HlRSCH. 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

That the Mayor and Commissioner of Public 
Works be, and they are hereby, authorized to 
enter into a contract on behalf of the city for 



two pumping engines to be used at the West 
Side Pumping Works, each engine to be of suf- 
ficient capacity to raise 15,000,000 United States 
gallons every twenty-four hours to the height 
of 150 feet above the city datum; also for nec- 
essary foundations for said engines, and for a 
suitable and necessary extension of the present 
pumping-works building and appurtenances. 

Whereas, A casualty happening since the 
last appropriation requires the erection of said 
engines, therefore it is ordered that the sur- 
plus of the Water Fund in excess of the amount 
necessary to meet the interest on the water 
bonds and ordinary current expenses be and 
the same is hereby appropriated for the engines 
and work ordered as aforesaid.

ALSO, 

The following communication: 

Mayor's Office, \ 
Chicago, July 6, 188L ) 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen: Since your last session the 
hand of an assassin has been lifted against the 
life of the President of the United States. It 
has caused a thrill of horror to fill the hearts 
of all good men throughout the civilized world, 
and the people of the United States have been 
inexpressibly shocked that such an attempt 
should have been a second time made against 
their first magistrate and their most exalted 
servant. 



The citizens of Chicago have had but one 
feeling aroused by this horrible deed— a feeling 
mingled with detestation of the great crime and 
heartfelt sympathy with President Garfield 
and his family. While they deeply deplore 
that any one could conceive and execute so 
dastardly a deed, they yet know that it was 
the act of a single man, and not the conspiracy 
of others, and they earnestly condemn the ran- 
cor which could even suggest that Guiteau's 
crime was the premediated act of any faction 
in the country. They recognize that assassi- 
nation as a means of removing a public servent 
can never become a growth on free American 
soil. The assassin may shock the sentiment of 
Americans, but cannot cause them to doubt 
the safety of the Republic, nor can he materi- 
ally disturb the equipoise of its institutions. 
Chicago now rejoices that the condition of the 
President gives hopes of his recovery. I re- 
commend that you pass resolutions of sym- 
pathy with him and his family 

Carter H. Harrison, Mayor. 

Aid. Burley moved that a committee be ap- 
pointed to prepare resolutions and present 
them to the Council. 

Agreed to.

Burley, Wickersham and Hildreth.

County Relations.

Counsel attached thereto. 

Agreed to. 

The following is the opinion: 

Citt Law Department, i 
Chicago, June 23, 1881. j 
A. H. Burley, Esq., Chairman Committee on 
Finance : 

Dear Sir : I have considered, as requested 
by your Committee, the petition of B. Adama 
& Co., and others, for refunding to the peti- 
tioners such portion of the city taxes of 1877 



July t>,J 



59 



|1881 



as were extended against an increased ralua- 
tion of 20 per cent., alleged to have been 
illegally made by the County Hoard, etc. l 
Dotloe that the "names bo the petition appear 
co beall in one handwriting, and thepetition 

states that the persons, whose names are signed 
by some third party whose authority is not ap 
parent, authorize Reynolds & Pomeroy, agents 
ami attorneys, to oollecl t He alleged illegal tax. 

Suits were brought by Messrs. Reynolds A 
Pomerov in the names of ten of the persons or 
firms, whose names are signed to the petition 
(which names your Committee will find under- 
scored in blue pencil in the petition) under 
rather singular circumstances. One of the firm 
of Reynolds & Pomeroy (which I do not know) 
a long time since came" to me and proposed to 
me to stipulate as to the facts in one case as a 
test, and that a hearing should be had in the 
case in the Superior Court. To this 1 agreed, 
and entered into a stipulation as to the facts. 
The case was argued before Judge Gary, who 
found for the citv and against the plaintiff in 
the suit. The attorney thereupon dismissed 
his suit before judgment was entered, and pro- 
posed to me to make another stipulation, which 
I declined to do, as I considered it a waste of 
time to stipulate with one who manifestly had 
no confidence in his own judgment. 

The attorney then threatened to bring a 
number of suits before a justice, outside the 
city limits, against the collector, Mr. McCrea; 
this, as it appeared to me, for the purpose of 
embarrassing the collector and the city. His 
threat had no effect, and he accordingly brought 
such suits before a Justice of the Peace in the 
Town of Jefferson. Mr. Lewis, of the firm of 
Stiles & Lewis, who acted as attorney for 
McCrea and myself, concluded, as the more 
convenient and less expensive way, to let judg- 
ment go for the plaintiffs before the justice, 
and appeal the cases, which we did, and they 
now stand for trial on appeal. The question 
for the Committee I suppose is, whether the 
persons taxed could cover the alleged illegal 
taxes by suit. 

I understand that most of those paying did so 
without compulsion, a-nd- voluntary, in which 
case there could be no recovery. The question 
as to the circumstances under which payment 
was made is material, and will arise in every 
case, and can, in my opinion, be better deter- 
mined in court than by your Committee, even 
though the Committee should devote its time 
to making the investigation. 

Respectfully, 

Francis Adams, 
Corporation Counsel. 

Aid. Burke presented a petition for sewer on 
Wallace street, which was 
Referred to the Department of Public Works. 

The Committee on Finance, to whom was 
referred the petition of John L. Haverkampf 
for refund of a special assessment on lot 10, 
block 6, Newbury's Addition, submitted a re- 
port recommending that it be placed on file. 

Aid. Burley moved to concur in trie report. 

The motion prevailed.

The same Committee, to whom was referred 
an ordinance concerning purchase of supplies 
for city officers, submitted a report recommend- 
ing its passage. 

Aid. Cullerton moved that the report be laid 
over and published.

cago in < 'oinicii assembled.

Agreed to. 

REPORTS OF CITY OFFICERS. 

His Honor the Mayor submitted his report of 
pardons from the House of Correction during 
the week ending July 9, which was 

Placed on file. 

The Commissioner of Public Works presented 
a communication concerning an ordinance before 
the Council, relating to the purchase of sup- 
plies, etc., which was 
Laid, over and published. 
The following "is the communication: 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in Council assembled : 
Gentlemen— An ordinance is now pending 
before your honorable body as follows: 
" That every officer oi employe of the muni- 



" cipal government, before making any pur. 
" chase or contracting for any expenditure in 
" behalf of such government, shall make a requi- 
sition in writing upon the City Comptroller 
" for such purchase or expenditure, except in 
" cases of contracts made by virtue of exist- 
" ing ordinances and which shall have been ap- 
" proved according to law. 

" That the said Comptroller shall keep a 
" requisition book in which all requisitions 
" shall be copied, giving the items required for 
" that office or department, and the name of the 
«« officer or employe making such requisition." 

This ordinance, if passed, will cause unnec- 
essary delays in my department in many in- 
stances where speedy repairs are needed, it 
will also have a demoralizing effect upon the 
discipline of the department; any employe 
without consulting me, can make a requisition 
on the Comptroller for the purchase of any- 
thing for the use of the city, and if granted by 
him I will be called upon to approve the vouch- 
er.whetherin my judgment tne expense should 
have been incurred or not. If this ordinance 
should be passed it will annul several impor- 
tant sections of the revised ordinances, which 
embody the settled rule of this department for 
years in this regard, and under which the in- 
terest of the city is, I think, sufficiently 
guarded. Said sections are as follows: 

" 559 Said Commissioner shall control and 
" direct all expenditures to be made by the De- 
" partment of Public Works; shall sign and 
" draw his requisition upon the Comptroller for 
" the payment of all bills and accounts there- 
" for which in his judgment are correct, and 
" which may be duly certified by the superin- 
" tendent under whose supervision the expend- 
" iture was incurred." 

44 566 No contract shall be made for any work 
" or supplies relating to any of the matters 
" within the cognizance of the Department of 
" Public Works, unless such work or supplies 



July 11,] 



62 



[188L 



" shall have been authorized by the City Coun- 
" cil, except that whenever any such work or 
" supplies shall be necessary, and the total cost 
" thereof shall not, in anyone case, exceed five 
" hundred dollars, the Commissioner of Public 
" Works may cause the same to be done or fur- 
" nished, under the supervision of theappropri- 
" ate officer of the department; but no such ex- 
" penditure shall be made without the written 
° order of the Commissioner of Public Works, 
" through his secretary, which order when 
" when filled, shall be returned and filed as a 
" voucher in said department, with the bill 
" upon which payment was made*" 

This places the responsibility where it be- 
longs, to wit: on the head of the department, 
who> is presumed to know better what is needed 
than any one outside of the department. While 
I would trust the present Comptroller to any 
amount, I think the precedent would be a dan. 
gerous one to make the purchaser and auditor 
of the bills of the city the same person. The 
check intended by the office of auditor in such 
case would be wholly destroyed. I feel it my 
duty to present these objections to the pro- 
posed ordinance to your honorable body, earn- 
estly believing that its passage would work 
injuriously to the city in mv department. 
Respectfully, 

Chas. S. Waller, 
Commissioner of Public Works.

The following is the report : 

City Law Department, / 
Chicago, July 18, 1881. S 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago, in Common Council assembled. 
Gentlemen: The order of June 27 of your 
honorable body, requesting an opinion of the 
City Attorney as to the right and authority for 
driving piles in Lake Michigan, between Ran- 
dolph and Twelfth streets, about 100 feet east 
of the present lake shore breakwater, I hereby 
comply with and respectfully report : 



That the Illinois Central Railroad Company 
is driving the piles in question upon the east 
line of its right of way, as per ordinance of 1852 
(M. C Sec. 2,585), which gives it a right of way 
from Twelfth street to Randolph street of 300 
feet; the west line of such right of way being 
100 feet from the east line of Michigan avenue. 
I am informed by the City Engineer, in his 
letter attached hereto, that the piles at present 
being driven are on the east line of said right 
of way, as suggested above. In 1856 (M. C. 
Sees. 2,596 and 2,597) the Common Council 
granted the Illinois Central Railroad Company 
additional right of way, beginning at a point in 
the old crib or breakwater, then existing on 
a line midwav between Washington and Madi- 
son streets, extended and embraced within the 
space designated on the map accompanying 
this communication as " Boundary line for 
right of way as per ordinance of 1856," the 
point in the old crib above being 700 feet south 
of the north line of Randolph street. The 
Illinois Central Railroad Company has a right 
of way 300 feet wide, pursuant to the ordi- 
nances. According to the City Engineer's re- 
port and the map hereto attached, the said 
railroad company is within the space limited 
by the ordinances so far as the pile-driving is 
concerned on east line of right of way. It 
appears by the map that railroads have en- 
croached upon city property west of the west 
line of said right of way north of Monroe street, 
which, however, is not the subject of inquiry 
by your order. Respectfully submitted, 
Julius s. Ghinnell, 

City Attorney. 
J. S. Grinnell, City Attorney : 

In response to your request for certain lmfor- 
mation in regard to pile-driving by the Illinois 
Central Railroad Company, I have to report 
said railroad company is driving a line of piles 
from near the north line of Park row east for 
about 300 feet; piles are almost five feet apart; 
the balance of the distance north of Monroe 
street are 300 feet apart, and all are parallel to 
west line of Michigan avenue, and are distant 
therefrom not to exceed 700 feet east. 

De Witt C. Ckegier, 

City Engineer. 

The Commissioner of Public Works submit- 
ted a communication in relation to dredging, 
which was ordered 

Published and referred to the Committee on 
Harbor and Bridges. 

The following is the communication: 

Department of Public Works, ) 
Chicago, July 18, 1881. S 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in City Council assembled: 

Gentlemen— On June 18, 1881, bids were 
opened in this department for dredging to be 
done in the Chicago river and its branches. 
Three bids were received as follows: 

Chicago Dock and Dredging Company, aver- 
age of bid 3463 cents per cubic yard, scow 
measurement. 

O. B. Green, average of bid, 34.75 cents per 
cubic yard, scow measurement. 

Harry Fox & Co., average of bid, 34.95 cents 
per cubic yard, scow measurement. 

By sounding measurement, which is the most 
accurate and fair, in my judgment, the bids 
from some parties were from 28 to 35 per cent, 
higher than the above. As responsible parties 
from New York offered last year to do this 
dredging of the entire river and its branches at 
an average price of 24 cents per cubic yard, 
scow measurement, it seems apparent that the 
city can make better terms than those offered 
in the bids which were opened in June last, 
the average of which are entered above. 

The stage of water in the river last year av- 
eraged about \U feet above the plane of city 
datum, and consequently there was no general 



July 18,| 



72 



[ 1881. 



demand or need for dredging. The lowest stage 
of water during the year was in the month of 
March. The water has kept up thus far during 
the present year to a higher and better stage 
than last year, being now over two feet above 
city datum. The probability, therefore, is that 
we can get through the present season with but 
little dredging. I have decided to reject all the 
bids opened June 18, 1881; and in view of the 
whole situation as stated herein, I respectfully 
submit the accompanying order to your honor- 
able body, with the opinion that, if passed, it 
will certainly be of benefit to the city. 
Respectfully, 

Chas. S. Waller, 
Commissioner of Public Works. 
Ordered, That the Commissioner of Public 
Works be and he is hereby authorized 
to contract for such dredging as may be needed 
in the Chicago river and its branches during 
the present year, 1881, without advertising for 
same: Provided, That, in any contract or con- 
tracts that he may make under the permission 
given bv this order, the average price per cubic 
yard to be paid by the city for said work shall be 
less than the lowest bid obtained and opened 
June 18, 1881: And provided also, That the 
contract or contracts made under this per- 
mission shall not exceed in all 150,000 cubic 
yards.

The following is the report: 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of 

Chicago in City Council assembled: 

Your Committee on Health and County rela- 
tions to whom was referred a communication 
from C. R. Matson, Coroner of Cook County, in 
reference to the necessity of a new morgue, 
also one from George A. Elton in reference to 
the same subject, having had the same under 
advisement, beg leave to report and recommend 
the passage of the enclosed order. 

Swatne Wickersham, 
J. J. Altpeter, 
O. M. Brady, 
James Peevet. 

Ordered by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, That the Superintendent be and he is 
hereby instructed to have sent to the morgue 
of George A. Elton, until further orders, all ': 
unknown and unclaimed dead bodies found : 
within the city limits, provided that no charge 
is made by the said George A. Elton against the 
City for any services he may render. 

City Law Department, i 
Chicago, July 25, 188L j 
Aid. S. Wickersham, Chairman Committee on •■< 
Health and County Relations : 

Sir— Your enclosure covering communication 
of C. R. Matson, County Coroner, and George 
A. Elton, in reference to the city morgue, is re- 
ceived. Both the city and the county have the 
right under the general powers to establish a 
morgue, and it is undoubtedly the duty of both '. 
to see that the unknown or unfortunate dead h 
are properly cared for. A building properly 
arranged for such a purpose is indispensable, 
and it should he suitable in its appointments, : 
guarded and superintended. From the com- I 
munications received, it appears that the con- 
dition of the present so-called morgue is simply 
horrible; neglect has made it a disgrace to 
humanity. Where the fault lies for this condi- 
tion of things, whether at the door of the city 
or of the county, it is needless to enquire; 
the fact remains that immediate action upon 
the subject is imperatively necessary. The 
cost of such a place is not great, and it should 
be under the control of one power rather than 
of two. It is probably because of a divided 
responsibility that the morgue has fallen into : 
its present condition. The City Council, under 
its general powers with regard to the preserva- 
tion of health and its police powers, can estab- 
lish a city morgue and provide for its protection 
and superintendence. 

Mr. Elton, in his communication, proposes to 
take charge of the dead in his private morgue, 
free of charge to the city. While it is doubtful

whether the oitv should make any arrangement 
of that kind of a permanent character, yet, 

pendine the erection of a new morgue ami in 
the absence of any other suitable place, I 
should think it advisable that the police of the 
city be directed to send such unknown dead 
that may be found to Mr. Elton's place. There 
thev can at least be eared for m a decent man- 
ner "until claimed bv friends or properly buried. 
A resolution of the Council directing the police 
in the manner indicated would be all the action 
necessary for the present. 

Verv respectfully, 

John N. Crawford, 
Assistant Corporation Counsel.

Whereas, Application has been made to this

lay water-mains in the streets of this city, and 
construct water works therewith for the pur- 
pose of supplying the inhabitants with water; 
and 

Whereas, Said permission is asked upon the 
pretense that the present city works are in- 
sufficient to supply our citizens with water; 
and 

Whereas, It is the judgment of this Council 
that no private person or corporation should be 
•nermitted in any manner to interfere with or 
have the control of any system for supplying 
our citizens with water, but the same should 
remain where it now is, under the control ot 
the municipal authorities; but for the purpose 
of ascertaining whether or not the alleged tact 
that the present water supply is insufficient for 
the use of our citizens [is correct], it is 

Resolved, That His Honor the Mayor, the City 
Comptroller, Commissioner of Public Works, 
Citv Engineer and Fire Marshal, be and they, as 
a committee, are hereby instructed to report to 
this Council at the next regular meeting upon 
the following matters— namely:

supply of water in any part or portion of the

2 What would be the cost of laying the 
water-mains and constructing the necessary 
works in connection therewith in such portion 
of the city, if any, as is insufficiently supplied 
with water. . ... , 

3. Is there any machinery or other thing be- 
longing to the city, but not now in use, which 
could be temporarily used to supply water m 
such portion or portions of the city as may now

4 What would be the probable cost ot laying 
waiter-mains and constructing works in such 
portion or portions of the city as require such 
works to be built and said water-mains to be 
laid by reason of the present insufficient sup- 
ply of water. . . .. n 

5. What amount of money now stands to the 
credit of the Water Fund, and what amount

The following veto message: 

Mayor's office, 

Chicago, Sept. 5, 1881. j 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago: . 

I herebv return to your honorable body with- 
out my approval a resolution, passed August 
8, 1881, directing the Commissioner of Public 
Works to withdraw the assessment for the im- 
provement of Astor street, from Division street 
to Schiller street, and to discontinue all pro- 
ceedings until the further order of the Council. 
I am informed by the Law Department that it 
is not within its power to comply with the res- 
olution. m . _ ,_ 

Application for judgment for so much ol the 
assessment as remained unpaid was made to the 



County Court at the last July term, and judg- 
ment was rendered against the lands delinquent 
in respect of the assessment, and process is 
now in the hands of the County Treasurer for 
the sale of the lands. The Law Department 
cannot, while the judgment remains in force, 
arrest the sale by the County Treasurer, and 
the July term of the court having passed, the 
court has no power over the judgment. If, 
however, the Council desires to abandon the 
improvement it can be done by repealing the 
ordinance ordering it and ordering that the as- 
sessment collected be refunded. A draft of an 
ordinance for that purpose is herewith submit- 
ted in case the Council shall determine to aban- 
don the improvement. 

The following facts are communicated tor the 
information of the Council : The total amount 
assessed against private property was |JgJ74. 
of which their has been collected about $3,804.09, 
leaving uncollected $1,737.65. This balance will 
probably be collected by the County Treasurer 
at the present sale unless the improvement be 
abandoned. The ordinance ordering the im- 
wovement was confirmed by the County Court 
March 16, 1881, without objections by the prop- 
erty owners. Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, Mayor.

By consent, Aid. Cullerton presented resolu-

and moved their adoption. 

The motion prevailed by a rising vote. 

The following are the resolutions as adopted : 

Resolved, That as members of the City Coun- 
cil of the City of Chicago, we desire to place 
upon the records of this Council ;:a tribute of 
respect to the memory of Major John H. Lanni- 
gan. Major Lannigan was born in 1844, at De- 
troit, Michigan, came to Chicago in 1861, enlisted 
as Second Lieutenant in the Twenty-third Illi- 
nois Infantry, Col. Mulligan commanding, and 
served with bravery, fidelity, and distinction in 
that regiment till it was mustered out at the 
close of the war, being in the meantime pro- 
moted to the position of First Lieutenant. He 
was at the battle of Winchester when Col. 
Mulligan was killed. 

He returned to Chicago after the war and in 
1874 entered the employ of the city, being con- 
nected with the Treasurer's Office from that 
time to the day of his death. 

For the past two years he has held the posi- 
tion of Assistant Inspector General of the 
State Militia, and was a member of the Second 
Regiment, holding the position of Major. 

His sudden death has caused a shock to all 
who knew him. He was a gentleman kind, 
courteous, and ever friendly to all, and pos- 
sessed in a high degree all that the word gen- 
tleman implies. His connection with the City 
Treasurer's office for over seven years has 
made him familiar to every person connected 
with this Council and with the City Officers, 
and to every one having business witfc the 
Treasury. His courteous and obliging manners 
have endeared him to all; his integrity and 
fidelity in the city's employ calls for respect 



and honor, and his pleasant and lovable nature 
has made him the kind friend. 

On Wednesday, the 7th inst., he left his desk, 
slightly ill. On Saturday, the 10th inst., sent 
word that he would be on duty the Monday 
following. Saturday he became worse, and on 
Sunday died in the bloom and vigor of man- 
hood, deeply mourned by mother and sisters, 
in whose midst he passed away, regretted and 
his loss deplored by his friends, but with the 
honor and respect of all for his manly, upright 
and blameless life. 

Resolved, That these resolutions be published 
in the regular proceedings of this Council, and 
that the Clerk cause a copy of these resolu- 
tions to be sent to the family of the deceased. 

His Honor, the Mayor, submitted a communi- 
cation appointing Dennis O'Brien as Bailiff of 
the South Division Police Court, and asking the 
concurrence of the Council therein.

REPORTS OF CITY OFFICERS. 

His Honor the Mayor submitted his report of

the week ending September 17, which was 

Placed on file. 

ALSO, 

The following communication : 

To the City Council of the City of Chicago : 

In the Department of Public Works is 
placed the supervision, construction, repara- 
tion, and maintenance of the public works of 
this great city. The Commissioner superin- 
tends the building, repairing and cleaning the 
streets. He has charge of the sub-department 
of engineering, under which are placed the 
viaducts, bridges, docks, harbor, and the laying 
and maintaining the network of water pipes, 
pumping works and tunnels supplying water 
to our people. He has charge of the sewers 
already built and the proper location of those 
yet to be laid. He has charge of the new city 
hall building, and lets all contracts and pre- 
pares the articles of contract after such letting. 
In addition to these manifold duties, he has to 
superintend all the clerical duties appertain- 
ing and belonging thereto. To perform all of 
these duties he has to be vigilant, industrious 
and honest, and should not be burdened with 
any duties incompatible therewith. In former 
times this department was under the manage, 
ment of three commissioners, one from each 
division of the city. That system developed 
sectional rivalry, and, consequent thereupon, 
log-rolling and extravagance. At present it is 
wisely placed under one responsible head. 
That head has enough to do, and has no time to 
spare for other duties than those legitimately 
under him. 

The sub- water department, organized for the 
collection of water rates, is purely fiscal and

L 1881 . 



clerical, and its supervision is calculated to 
distract the mind.ot' the Commissioner of Pub 
lie Works from the proper duties he has to per- 
form. As Mayor, I have given large attention 
to this department, and have long since thought 
it not properly belonging to the Department 
of Public Works, hut should he under the 
Finance Department of the city— that is, under 
the Comptroller. Already so much as goes to 
the collector is under the supervision of 
the Comptroller. It should all be there. The 
department is already admirably managed and 
gives evidence of great reforms. I believe 
that the change will lead to still further re- 
forms, and will relieve an excellent and over- 
burdened officer. Having studied the matter 
closely, and believing the change would be 
good for the taxpayers, I have caused the Law 
Department to prepare amendments to the 
ordinances properly to bring about such 
change, aud submit the same for your consid- 
eration, ana earnestly recommend that you do 
pass them. 

There is another matter I desire to call your 
attention to. The bridge nuisance has grown 
to be almost intolerable. Sooner or later the 
riyer, at least from the junction of the two 
branches up to some point near the mouth of 
the canal, must be closed and a new channel 
but thence to the lake. The West Side is now 
half of the city, and it will not long submit to 
the delays and'vexations caused by the open- 
ing and closing of the bridges. The change I 
indicate is one of great magnitude and cannot 
be brought about for several years. But in the 
meantime something must be done. Tunnels 
do not seem to satisfy the people. Immediate 
relief can only be brought about by numerous 
bridges, and those bridges to be as wide as the 
streets leading to them, so as to admit the pass- 
age of teams as along the streets. In London 
and Paris the bridges are all now being built 
of equal width with the streets. But there 
such bridges do not require to be drawn, as 
here. Ours must be draw-bridges. So few lo- 
calities require such structures that inventive 
genius is not called info activity to devise new 
systems and plans sufficient to enable double 
rows of teams to cross and yet not narrow the 
channel of the river when vessels are passing. 
I have thought much of this, and have come to 
the conclusion we can get the aid of inven- 
tive genius only by offering a generous reward 
for the best practical plan for a draw- bridge 
suitable to our necessities. I recommend, 
therefore, that you empower the Mayor to offer 
a reward of $5,000 for such plan, the same not 
to be paid unless something valuable be sub- 
mitted, and to pay such reward out of moneys 
not otherwise appropriated. 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Everett moved that the ordinances be 
referred to the Committee on Finance. 

Agreed to. 

Aid. Burley moved that that part of the 
message concerning bridges be referred to the 
Committee on Harbor and Bridges. 

Agreed to. 

His Honor the Mayor submitted a communi- 
cation appointing Fred Ludewigs Superintend- 
ent of the West Randolph street public mar- 
ket and asking the concurrence of the Council 
therein. 

Aid. Schroeder moved to concur in the ap- 
pointment. 

The motion prevailed by yeas and nays as 
follows :

ton, Shorey, Phelps, Watkins, Wetherell, 
Burke, Sheridan, Cullerton, Altpeter, Hildreth,

The City Comptroller submitted a communi- 
cation concerning city (lnanc.es, which was 

Published and placed on tile. 

The following is the communication: 

Chicago, Sept. 20, 1881. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in Council assembled : 

Gentlemen: I wish to direct your atten- 
tion to considerations affecting the interest of 
the Municipal Government: 

The total amount of revenue from taxation 
for the year 1882 will be upon present property 
valuation of $117,133,643, which at 2 per cent is 
$2,342,672, less 5 per cent for non-collection of 
taxes, $117,133; leaving revenue from this 
source of $2,225,539. To which may be added 
cash from miscellaneous st urces, saloon li- 
censes, rents, etc., $300,000, making a total rev- 
enue for 1882 of $2,525,539. 

The law passed at the recent session of our 
State Legislature, authorizing a revaluation of 
real estate, will not permit an increase of rev- 
enue in this direction for the coming fiscal year, 
for the reason that appropriations are deter- 
mined in March, and the revaluation in May 
following; it will, therefore, be necessary, if it 
is thought advisable to expend an amount in 
1882 in excess of the foregoing sum, to estab- 
lish a system of licenses. The revaluation of 
property to take place in May next will doubt- 
less provide for the wants of the City Govern- 
ment for 1883, consequently licenses other than 
those now in force may be limited to a single 
year. Very respectfully, 

Theodore T. Gurney, 

City Comptroller. 

The Commissioner of Public Works submit- 
ted a communication concerning authority given 
the Chicago and Western Indiana R. R. Co. to 
lay telegraph cable on Third avenue, and ask- 
ing that the order be so amended that the cable 
be laid in the alley between Third and Fourth 
avenues.

SPECIAL MEETING. 



SEPTEMBEB SO, 1881. 



OFFICIAL RECORD. 

Present— His Honor the Mayor, and Alder- 
men Wickersham, Dixon, Sanders, Appleton, 
Shorey, Phelps, Watkins, Wetherell, Burke, 
Sheridan, Oullerton, Altpeter, Hildreth, Rior- 
dan, Purcell, Smyth, Peevey, Schroeder, Nel- 
son, Bond, Dean, Hulhert, Everett, Brady,

(16th Ward), Murphy, Barrett, Burley, and 
Blair. 

Absent— Aldermen Lawler and Meyer (15th 

Ward) . 

His Honor the Mayor presented the following 
message to the Council: 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of 
Chicago in City Council assembled: 
Gentlemen— Last night while you were dis- 
cussing an important matter, the fire gong 
startled you hy its measured toll. It said, 
14 The President is dead ! " You at once silent- 
ly adjourned. I have called you together to 
make the formal announcement that the Chief 
Magistrate of the United States, after a heroic 
struggle of eighty days with grim death, has 
at last given up the fight— that his spirit, at 
10.35 last night, winged its flight to the pres- 
ence of its God, leaving behind it a name which 



will live as long as history continues to he writ- 
ten. 

This is a painful announcement, whether you 
think of James A. Garfield as a man or as the 
Executive head of this mighty Republic. As 
a man he had his faults, perhaps, for who that 
is human has not? but his virtues were far 
greater than have been bestowed on even a 
minority :of those whom the world has called 
great. He was a kind and generous friend, a 
loving and gentle husband, and a devoted fath- 
er. He was an industrious public servant, and 
endeavored to square all of his public acts by 
an upright and peculiarly sensitive conscience. 
He was an earnest patriot, and showed his love 
for his country on the battlefield as well as in 
the legislative halls. He was ambitious, but 
his ambition was of that exalted character 
which pined for an eternal fame. He has been 
cut off in a manner which will cause his name 
to live forever. But he has been robbed of his 
most darling wish, which was that he would 
fasten his name to some act which would for- 
ever endear him to his fellow-men. As Presi- 
dent of this mighty land, had he been spared, 
this most earnest desire might have been grati- 
fied. It is a bitter thing for such a man to be 
cut off thus on the threshold of his great op- 
portunity. 



Sept. 20, J

[1881. 



Regarding him as a man, we can profoundly 
mourn his untimely death; but when we regard 
him as the Chief Magistrate of the United 
States, we have far more poignant pain. He 
was murdered, not because he had awakened 
personal animosity, not because he had embit- 
tered a human life, but because he was the 
Chief Magistrate. The assassin aimed at his 
heart, not because that heart was a man's, but 
because it beat within a President's breast. It 
is a terrible thought that the man whom a na- 
tion exalts to be its Chief Executive, its chief 
servant, should be a target for a fanatic's bul- 
let. Thank God, but one feeling animates the 
hearts of all men and women in this broad land 
—execration and horror of the deed and of the 
wretch who perpetrated it. I hope this exe- 
cration will grow and grow into a hatred of the 
vile system in our body politic which maddened 
infamous Guiteau's braiu. The assassin of 
the President was a mad fanatic, but his last act 
was the result of political pyaemia in our gov- 
ernmental fabric — greed of office. It has been 
charged that the black axiom, " To the victor 
belongs the spoils," was promulgated by a 
great man. Every friend of the defender of 
New Orleans should resent the vile aspersion. 
To that axiom we owe the rapid diffusion of the 
poison which belongs to the spoils system. 
Office is for the good of the people, and not 
spoils for the officeholder. That party should 
be entitled to the longest life in this country 
which most boldly and honestly demands that 
this upas-tree of republican institutions be 
eternally and utterly eradicated. The death of 
James A. Garfield brings this hideous monster 
plainly before the eyes of the world. He be- 
lieved in reform in the civil service. His coun- 
trymen can best show their appreciation of his 
worth by following what he would advise 
could his spirit speak to them to-day. Let it 
be written in letters of blood, "Guiteau's bul- 
let was sped by the spoils system. In the 
name of Garfield, death to the vile system." 

Gentlemen, I recommend that you adopt ap 
propriate resolutions, that the same be spread 
upon the records, and that you appoint a com- 
mittee of the Council to attend the funeral of 
our lamented President, and, in the name of 
Chicago, to drop a tear upon his grave. 

I shall issue a proclamation calling upon the 
people of this great city to desist from all labor 
and amusements during the hoursof the funer- 
al, and thus to show their respect for the dead 
President of the United States and their horror 
of the black deed which so untimely took him 
off. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor. 

Aid. Wickersham moved that the Chair ap. 
point a committee of five to prepare and pre- 
sent to the Council such resolutions as they 
deem appropriate. 

Agreed to. 

The Chair appointed as such committee Aid. 



Wickersham, Phelps, Everett, Young and 
Meier. 

Aid. Barrett moved that Aid. Burley be added 
to the committee. 

Agreed to. 

The committee retired and subsequently pre- 
sented a preamble and resolutions for the con- 
sideration of the Council. 

Aid. Burley— The President of the United 
States is dead! Again we are called upon to 
mourn the death of the Chief Magistrate by the 
hand of an assassin. Again we are obliged to 
see our system of republican government 
tested, and let us hope that all our people will 
now, as in days gone, be united in the determi. 
nation that our government shall stand. What- 
ever may be the individual differences of opin- 
ion, let us be united in the one idea that in 
union and in the supremacy of law lies our 
safety. The President is dead! Long live the 
President! The President is dead, but we 
still have a President and a government. 
While we mourn the loss of our late honored 
Chief Magistrate, let us reaffirm our loyalty to 
our government and to those upon whom its 
cares and duties devolve. Let us pray that 
God in His Divine Providence will direct 
our rulers and guide them, andj, preserve 
our country from internal dissension and 
external wars. There is little to be said 
upon an occasion like this. I cannot avoid 
expressing my admiration for the man we 
have lost, and expressing the hope that his 
successor may be all we could hope or wish 
him to be. I will suggest with regard to the 
resolutions that it would be proper to add one 
that the Mayor and a committee of Aldermen 
(of five) to be appointed by him, to attend the 
funeral ceremonies wherever they are held as 
representatives of the City of Chicago. 

Aid. Dixon moved as an amendment that the 
committee consist of the Mayor and nine Al- 
dermen. 

Aid. Burley accepted the amendment of Aid. 
Dixon and the amendatory resolution was 
agreed to by the Council. 

The resolutions as amended were then unan- 
imously adopted by a rising vote. 

The following are the preamble and resolu- 
tions as adopted: 

Whereas, We have learned with profound 
sorrow and regret of the death of the eminent 
and respected Chief Magistrate of the nation, 
James A. Garfield, who, during his short occu- 
pancy of the highest position in the gift of a 
great people and as the ruler of 50,000,000, had 
won their entire confidence, their esteem, and 
their admiration by his manly character, his 
broad views, and his statesmanlike qualities; 
who gave promise of giving our country an 
administration under which unexampled pros- 
perity would be a ruling characteristic alike in 
all sections, industries of all kinds fostered and 



iept 20,]

encouraged as they never have been encour- 
aged bo tore in the history Of America, and our 
relation's as a corporate body politic established 
on a closer, firmer, and more intimate and amia- 
Ole basis than ever before with the other nations 
of the world; ami who had evinced in all the 
rancors of political strife between party fac- 
tions a deep sense of a feeling which should 
always animate the head of a great people— a 
feeling to which the martyred Lincoln gave 
memorable utterances in the epigrammatic sen- 
tence: "With malice toward none, with charity 
for all"; and 

Whkueas, Our grief has been made the 
more keen and intense by the fact that his 
death has been by the hand of an unprin- 
cipled and dastardly assassin; that, in his 
demise, the lawlessness, utter abandonment, 
and recklessness of a man should be made man- 
ifest in a country of pure and liberal principles, 
where "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happi- 
ness" is guaranteed to all in the Constitution 
of our land, and that the wish of all for his 
continued administration should thus be ruth- 
lessly set aside by one iniquitous individual; 
and 

Whereas, Our sense of sorrow is also most 
deeply touched at a time when it seemed that, 
after so long and anxious waiting for his recov- 
ery, he might still be saved to the nation, and 



that the long and heroic struggle he made for 
life gave hopes for a return of health; there- 
fore be it 

Resolved, That we extend to the family of our 
late Chief Magistrate our heartfelt and tender 
sympathy in their irreparable loss. 

Resolved, That as a proper mark of respect 
the City Hall be draped in mourning for the 
period of thirty days, and that on the day of 
the funeral ceremonies his Honor the Mayor 
direct that all the public offices and schools be 
closed, and that he request that all places of 
amusement be closed and business be sus- 
pended. 

Resolved, That these resolutions be spread 
upon the records of this Council and that copies 
be sent to the President of the United States, 
the heads of departments in Washington, and 
to the family of the late President. 

Resolved, That his Honor the Mayor and a 
Committee of nine Aldermen, to be appointed 
by him, attend the furneral ceremonies wher- 
ever they are held, as representatives of the 
City of Chicago. 

Aid. Schroeder moved that the Council do 
now adjourn. 
The motion prevailed and the Council stood 

adjourned.

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi-

upon a sidewalk, having had the same under

F A. H. BURLEY, 

Chairman. 

City Law Department, > 
Chicago, August 30, 1881. J 
To Finance Committee: _ 

Gentlemen: The petition of John D.Maclean 
for compensation for an injury he claims to have 
received on a sidewalk on State street, near 
Thirteenth street.referred to the department for 
opinion as to liability of the city, I herewith re- 
turn my opinion, based upon the accompanying 
letters and all the facts I have been able to 
learn about the sidewalk and the accident, 
after careful inquiry, is to the effect that Mr. 
Maclean probably can recover a judgment, and, 
if possible, the matter should be settled to save 
expense. There is something about this case I 
hardly comprehend. Mr. Maclean is a reputa- 
ble, good man, who lives near Thirty-second 
street, on Vernon avenue. On or about August 
3, 1880, between one and two o'clock a.in., he 
started from a lodge meeting down town to go 
home, afoot and alone, up State street. When 
near Thirteenth street, on the west side of 
State street, in stepping from a lower to a 
higher grade in the walk, he in some manner 
slipped his foot under the step, there being no 
riser, but an open space of about six inches (the 
height of the step), and broke his leg above the 
ankle. Two parties who happened there im- 
mediately after the accident agree that he 
acted dazed and stupid, but soon after appeared 



Sept. 29,]

[1881. 



clear-headed. I cannot understand how he 
could have got his foot into this step. Maclean 
says he was not that night, and never was, 
under the inlluence of intoxicating liquors. 
As I am inclined to believe him, I am embar- 
rassed, because I don't see how the accident 
could occur to any man in full possession of his 
faculties. There is a question in this case 
which may help the city: If this sidewalk, or 
step, is properly constructed and reasonably 
safe, the city is not liable, and Mr. Maclean's 
accident is only chargeable to a misfortune. In 
my opinion, the sidewalk and step are reason- 
ably safe; in fact, thousands pass it every 
day, and this is the only accident I have heard 
of which would imply that the sidewalk 
was absolutely safe. The question of safety of 
the walk is one entirely for the jury, and with 
my knowledge of the historical inclination of a 
jury to help the plaintiff, I say in the beginning 
of this communication that I believe he will 
get a judgment, and the court above will say 
that as the jury has passed upon the question 
of safety, it will not disturb the verdict. Hence 
if this matter can be settled, I believe the city 
will be the gainer in the end. 

Respectfully yours, 

Julius S. Grinnell. 
City Attorney.

The following is the communication: 

City op Chicago, > 

Department op Finance, Oct. 4, 1881. \ 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of CM- 

caao in City Council assembled: 

Gentlemen— Mr. Kgbert Jamieson has pre- 
sented his claim tor balance of the $12,000 ap- 
propriation of 1881, for revision of the City 
Ordinances. This balance, $5,380.16, I have not 
felt authorized to pay without referring the 
matter for your consideration. 

First— That I am not of the opinion that such 
revision is of a character that justifies the 
claim. I have had an examination made by 
Prosecuting Attorney Charles S. Cameron, 
Esq., which shows that inaccuracies are so 
prominent in importance and numbers as to 
render the revision of much less value than 
was anticipated when the work was ordered. 
It may be that Mr. Jamieson is not responsible 
for errors not detected by the City Council, 
but my impression has teen that you depended 
upon him for reasonably perfect work, and for 
which he was to be paid. 

Second— Although the language of the appro- 
priation referred to seems to indicate that the 
sum of $12,000 was to be paid witheut regard to 
cost of pi-inting or the personal services of Mr. 
Jamieson, I feel that you should be consulted 
rather than to assume an interpretation of the 
ordinance that might not meet your views of 
the subject. I learn that the cost of printing 
2,000 volumes is about $1.33 per copy— $2,660. 
This would leave Mr. Jamieson for his services 
$9,340. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Theodore T. Gfrney, 

City Comptroller: 

City Law Department, ; 
Chicago, October 1, 1881. \ 
Hon. T. T. Gurnet, Esq., 
City Comptroller: 

Dear Sir— In reply to your note of the 27th 
ult., requesting me to inform you of any "de- 
fects, omissions, or other deficiencies in the 
penal ordinances, as revised by Egbert Jamie- 
son, which have come to my notice," I have the 
honor to report: 

First— That section "2071, respecting general 
ordinances conflicting or inconsistent with re- 
vised ordinances, contains no saving clause, as 
did the revision of I?73(page 87, section 10), the 
result of which is that all prosecutions on 
repealed ordinances pending at the time the 
new ordinance took effect, including appeal 
cases, were thereby suspended and must fail. 

Second— A frequent charge in Police Courts 
is being drunk in public places. The ordinan- 
ces of 1873 (page 77, section 8), provided for this 
offense. The new ordinance does not. Section 
5 of the charter of the Washingtonian Home 
provides for receiving persons sentenced for 
intemperance, drunkenness, or misdemeanor 
caused thereby and for no other charge. 

Third— The penalty for a violation of quite a 
large number of the provisions of the new ordi- 
nances is fine or imprisonment, or both. This 
is, so far as it calls for imprisonment;, void, and 
it is a question whether it does not vitiate the 
fine as well. 

Fourth— Section 630 authorizes the Commis- 
sioner of Buildings to stop the construction or 
alteration or repairs of any building which is 
being done in a reckless or careless manner, 
but provides no penalty either for the disobe- 
dience of sueh order, or the construction of the 
same.

149 



I1H81. 



Fifth— Section 1102 authorizes the using ot the 
space under the sidewalks by a permit from 
the Commissioner of Buildings, Section 1928 
provides that the permit shall be from the 
Commissioner of Public Works. 

Sixth— QuitQ a number of sections provide tor 
a penalty, but no continuing penalty, the result 
of which is, that a person might pay his line 
willingly, if he could enjoy the benefit of his 

Seventh— Section 110S and 1109 require a house- 
mover to get a license from the Mayor; to exe- 
cute a bond, to be approved by the Commis- 
sioner of Buildings; and to get a permit from 
the Commissioner of Public Works, a some- 
what round-about proceeding. 

Eighth— There are twosections, Nos. 1,613 and 
l,€24, on the subject of disorderly conduct, 
which should have been consolidated in order 
to facilitate prosecution and avoid mistakes. 

Ninth— The indices are very deficient and 
incomplete. 

Tenth— Section 1,236 provides that on com- 
plaint to the Mavor of any dog which shall, by 
barking, howling, biting, etc., disturb the quiet 
of any person, the Mayor shall direct a police 
officer to give notice thereof to the person keep- 
ing such dog, who, if he shall not kill or remove 
such dog within one clay, shall be fined $10 for 
every dog. This imposes a petty duty upon 
the Mavor which should be performed by some 
other officer. The ordinances of 1873, sections 
13 and 14, page 16, provide that upon affidavit 
before a police justice that a dog has bitten any- 
one, the justice shall issue an order to the owner 
to kill the animal within forty-eight hours, and 
in case of failure to, etc., fining him $25, and $2 
a day thereafter. 

Eleventh— There is no heading at the top of 
each page of the ordinance, showing the chap- 
ter, article, etc. 

Twelfth— The Health Department complains 
that section 688 of the new ordinances, which 
is the same as section 4, of chapter 17, of the 
old, does not contain the amended ordinance 
passed February 21, 1877; also, that section 22, 
of chapter 51, ordinance of 1873, has been sus- 
pended by section 1,587 of new ordinances, 
which only prohibits throwing rubbish in the 
streets, by which horses or other quadrupeds 
shall or may be injured or endangered. Also, 
that the fruit ordinance of February 18, 1878, is 
omitted in the new. Also, that section 7, of 
chapter 9, page 180, ordinances 1873, and section 
5, ordinance June 21, 1877, in regard to the burial 
of the dead, and burial permits, are omitted 
from the new ordinance, and that hence there 
is nothing in the new ordinance prohibiting the 
burial of the dead without first obtaining a 
permit from the Health Department. 

Thirteenth— -By the terms of sections 1,853 and 
1,861 of the new ordinance, common or ill gov- 
erned houses and disorderly houses are limited 
to places where persons are permitted to play 
at any game of chance for money or other valua- 
ble thing; or to saloons or groceries in which 
minors are permitted to drink intoxicating 
drinks. It will not be hard to imagine many 
disorderly houses and places outside of these 
limits. These are defects and omissions which 
require action on the part of the city council 
to rectify, and should be remedied at once. 1 
have not had the time requisite to a full and 
thorough investigation of the subject, but have 
devoted such time as I could spare from my 
other duties to the most, if not all, of the im- 
portant omissions and defects of the penal ordi- 
nances as contained in the revision of Mr. 
Egbert Jamieson. 

Your obedient servant, 

C. S. CAMERON,

Department of Public Works, ) 
Chicago, Oct. 17, 1881. J 
To the Hon. Mayor and the City Council of the 

%S$£!gSP&n the 18th day of July 1881 
your honorable body passed an ordinance for the 
improvement of West Adams street. Said or- 
dinance contains minute specifications as to the 
mode and manner of doing said work. On tne 
8th day of August, 1881, your honorable body 
passed an order d. reeling me to advertise and 
let said work without delay. Concerning this 
lastorder there was a legal question involved 
and 1 was delayed for a time waiting upon the 
Law Department for an opinion in the premises- 
I then advertised for proposals to do said work 
and on the 12th inst. received four .bids there 
for Messrs. John* M. C. Duffy being the low 
est*. As these gentlemen are responsible con 
tractors, and have done considerable work tor 
the city, I proposed, of course, to give them the 
contract; but on the afternoon of the same 
day I was served with a notice by Mr. Wm. Ji. 
Shaw (who was one of the competing bidders) 
notifying me that the kind of improvement 
proposed for said street was a patent and that 
he alone bad authority from the patentee to 
make said improvement on. said street (saw 
notice and letter accompanying are submitted 
h erewitb, marked « A" and » B "). The speci- 
fications set forth in the ordinance passed for 



Oct. 17,]

[1881. 



the improvement of said street requires "Trini- 
dad Asphalt" to be used. Mr. Duffy, upon in- 
quiry, finds there is a "corner "on this material, 
and he is unable to get it. I submit a letter 
from Messrs. Barrett, Arnold & Kimball to Mr. 
Duffy, showing this fact (said letter marked 
"C "). I also submit a letter from the Messrs. 
Duffy, offering to improve the street in a differ- 
ent and better manner (as they contend) for the 
amount bid by them (said letter is herewith 
filed and marked "D"). As your honorable 
body could not have been aware of the situation, 
or youwould not have ordered me to advertise 
for bidders, and as the law requires me to award 
to the lowest responsible bidder, and I am 
estopped in this case by notice of patent and 
of the "corner" on "Trinidad Asphalt," I feel 
it my duty to refer all the facts to you, and to 
ask for instructions in the premises. 

Respectfully, 

Ohas. S. Waller, 

Commissioner of Public Works.

Washington, June 6th, 1881. 
To the Hon. Commissioner of Public Works of 

the City of Chicago. 

I hereby certify that William E. Shaw, of the 
city of Chicago, is the sole person authorized by 
me to lay my patent pavement on West Adams 
street between Halsted street and Hoyne 
avenue, in tne city of Chicago, according to 
the specifications for paving said mart of said 
street as represented in the petition ot the 
property owners of said street, dated April 
28th, 1881, and as ordered by the City Council 
of the city ©f Chicago, June 6th, 1881. 

(Signed) D. W. Bailey, 

Patentee and sole owner of the Bailey Stone 
and Asphalt Pavement. 

Chicago, Oct. 12th, 1881. 
To the Hon. Commissioner of Public Works of 

the City of Chicago. 

Sir,— In answer to your proposals for im- 
proving West Adams street, from Halsted 
street to Hoyne avenue, I wish to state the 
facts in relation to the matter so far as I am 
concerned. The property owners of West 
Adams street were desirous to have their 
street paved with a pavement that had been a 
great success in Eastern cities, and as I have 
the sole agency for it for this city, they said if 
I could lay it on their street at the price of the 
assessment then made foranotherkindof pave- 
ment for their street they would petition the 
City Council to make the changes. They did 
so, and the City Council ordered the change 
made, and I am now ready to do the work as 
ordered by the City Council at the cost as 
estimated in the assessment for improving that 
street, and will furnish good and satisfactory 
bonds for the faithful performance of the work, 
and that it shall be done to the entire satisfac- 
tion of the Department of Public Works. 
Respectfully yours, 

Wm. E. Shaw. 

P.S.— Enclosed please find a copy of my author- 
ity to lay the pavement. 

« C." 

Chicago, October 14th, 1881. 
Jno. Duffy, Esq. 

Dear Sir,— We have telegraphed to the head- 
quarters of the Asphalt people, and they de- 
cline to sell any Asphalt except to McBean, 
Ray & Nagle, and J. L. Fulton & Co. We do 
not know of any way in which you could get 
the Asphalt necessary to do the work on Adams 
street. It is possible that next year the 
Asphalt may get out from under their con- 
trol, but that is too uncertain to count on. 
Yours respectfully, 

Barrick, Arnold & Kimball. 



Commissioner of Public Works. 

We the undersigned make you the following 
proposition for the improvement of West Adams 
street, from the west line of Halsted street to 
the east line of Hoyne avenue :— For to grade 
the street to the proper grade required, then to 
roll with a (15) ton roller, then to put on (10) 
inches of macadam instead of (6) inches, and 
then rolled again with a (15) ton roller, and 
then a concrete (2) inches in thickness made 
of hydraulic cement and stone screenings 
and then thoroughly rolled or tamped, and then 
a composition of granite screenings and Barrett 
and Arnold's paving composition thoroughly 
mixed to be put on (2) inches in thickness, and 
then rolled or tamped and then an inch of 
granite screenings spread over the street for 
top dressing at the price mentioned in the 
former bid.

The following is the report : 

COMPTROLLER'S OFFICE, } 

Chicago, Oct. 10, 1881. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in Council assembled : 
Gentlemen— The accounts of the various 
police court bailiffs have been examined as per 
order of the Council. There are in the hands 
of bailiffs for collection, executions to the fol- 
lowing amounts, viz. : 
Bailiff Whalen, West Division Police 

Court $1,324.50 

Bailiff Plynn, South Division Police 

Court ... 6,943.50 

Bailiff Hefter, Southwest Division 

Police Court 1,589.00 

Bailiff Hansborough, North Division 

Police Court 2,879.00 

The amounts in the hands of Bailiffs Whalen 
and Hefter are not unusually large, considering 
the amount of business done at their respective 
courts. The greater part of this is embraced 
in executions served against owners of unli- 
censed dogs. These officers, Whalen and Hef- 
ter, are now very regu lar in making th eir reports 
as required by law. Of the amount in the hands 
of Bailiff Flynn, most of it should be collect- 
able, as the executions are principally against 
prostitutes and like characters. This large sum 
is greatly in excess of what it should be, many 
of these executions having been in his hands 
since January 1st, 1881. This bailiff has made 
no report since last April, the law requiring 
him, as well as others in his position, to make a 
full report to the Comptroller once a month. 

The accounts of Bailiff Hansborough are in 
still worse shape. The amount of executions 
in his hands, in proportion to the work done in 
other courts being largely in excess of any of 
the above mentioned bailiffs. No report has 
been received from this bailiff since May last. 
Respectfully, 

Theodore T. Gurnet, 

Comptroller.

Chairman of Committee on Judiciary: 
Dear Sir— In your communication of tins 
date vou ask me for an opinion as to the author- 
itv of the City Council, under existing orduu 
anees. to pass an ordinance granting to the 
-Brush Electric Light Company jhejmj 
lege of constructing a line, primes, of wire for 
the transmission of 1 lectricity for light and 
power, through the streets, etc., of the city. 
The bill for an ordinance submitted to me is 
so General in its terms that it is not clear 
whether the intention is to construct the lines 
of wire above or underground. It the Dill as 
framed should pass, the wires, in rayopinion. 
Sign t be constructed eith er above or below the 
Surface of the ground. I have been informed, 
however, by Mr. Cross, who seems to be inter- 
ested in the company, that the company can 
onlv construct its lines in the street by elevat- 
ing'them above the surface of the ground. 

The intention of the City Council in passing 
Section 2,022 of the revised ordinances, clearly 
was to prevent such construction after the 
passage of the ordinance. The lines proposed 
to be erected by the company are intended tor 
the transmission of electricity, and are covered 
by the words «« electric conductor used in the 

8e The n 'section does not, of course, limit the 
power of the Council, and the Council may 
grant the power asked ; notwithstanding such 
grant may (as it certainly would) conflict with 
the general ordinance. 

You will allow me to suggest furtner, that 
if the privilege asked be granted, the mam fea 
lures of the manner of construction should be 
prescribed by the ordinance granting the privi- 
lege, and not left to the discretion of any city 
officer or department. 

In this view, before the law department can 
frame a bill for an ordinance intelligently, it
